Gregory Timp's Biography

Gregory Timp, Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Electrical Engineering & Systems Biology, The University of Notre Dame

Gregory Louis Timp received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1986 working with Mildred Dresselhaus. After a post-doc at IBM with Alan Fowler, he joined Bell Laboratories in 1988, where he engaged in research on nanostructure physics. In 2010, he joined the faculty of Notre Dame to pursue nano-biotechnology with an appointment jointly in Biological Sciences and Electrical Engineering. He is the Keough-Hesburgh professor of Engineering and Systems Biology. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; a Fellow of the American Physical Society; and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. He has published over 150 articles in scientific journals and holds 10 patents.

Synthetic biology demands high precision tools capable of reprogramming a cell’s genetic code and manipulating cells into tissue to produce predictable functions. We show that it is now possible to satisfy these specifications using nanopores to reprogram the genes of a single cell with single molecule precision, and optical tweezers to position with submicron precision multiple cell types to engineer three dimensional heterogeneous tissue architectures.
